    A friend of mine has a really cool shop. He works overseas for 8 months out of the year, has for years and a "shop" was his reward to himself. A bathroom with shower and urinal, a reloading room, dry storage, office, front loader and a welding set up, with mucho parking.

    ( not being a gun person) I think a reloading room is a super clean dry workroom where you can clean your guns, load black powder and play with ammo (??) It is usually a dedicated space.

    Oh, OK. I thought it was something like one of those little peep show rooms at a porn shop. Or would that be an " unloading room " ?

    Yes, a pair of Dillion 650 re-loaders would really set the mood of that shop.

    My dad's reloading room was the cellar. Which was neither dry nor super clean. Hell... it wasn't even REMOTELY clean. :D

    Awesome setup for minimal cost! Sweet. The best part about it is the lighting. Such a good brightly lit area.

    I used to have a light switch like that. It was good. How do you find yours?

    The glass block windows all have small windows on them. They vented pretty well when we epoxy painted the floor. Its perfectly dry down there anyways also.

    Nice Jim!! Makes my basement shop look positively archaic.

    Hope someday I can get back up to Roch-cha and see it in person.
